Anybody know who played this music for this soundie and if the title of the music is Jiveroo?

Amusing short featuring a great song, great dancing and awful clothing.

Subject: Great dancing -- with one exception
A marvelous dance routine, and some of the sexiest outfits I've seen in a forties film -- I'm not talking about the guy's, mind you. But watch the girl on the left. She has trouble keeping time, and it's fun to see how often she misses.

Good upbeat jive routine where Harry really pours on the cheese! Love the hot costumes on the girls. Download this NOW!

No sense in me poking fun at Harry's duds, he takes enough of a beating below. :oD

The June Taylor dancers did fine, a cut above the solo dancers. June Taylor eventually became choreographer on the Jackie Gleason television variety show. The male dancer's costume was ridiculous, and the set looked like it was made by some high school.

Subject: Bolero Jacket + Skimpy Costumes = Fun
This is one great example of a soundie. The lead dancer with his bolero jacket and pants that go to his armpits (Hello, Fred Mertz!) is a laugh, and the girls at the beginning with their skimpy candy stripe costumes is entertaining as well. What a great soundie!

Pretty standard Soundie with pretty dancing girls and a lead male dancer and his accompanying female dancer. This would all be passable except for the fact that the costumes for this is just gaga, the dancing girls are all wearing french baby doll costumes, the accompanying dancer, for some odd reason, is wearing this french maid outfit complete with apron, and FINALLY, the male dancer is wearing the most ultra-bizarre costume ever seen, ok, it looks like a tight one piece suit accompanied by a bolero jacket. Through out this, I was wondering where this guy's waist was LMAO. Reccomended!

Ive never felt like the need to comment on a soundie but this is brilliant. Great but amusing dancing that makes it seem a lot shorter than it actually is.

This soundie features a slightly strange nightclub floor show, with chorus girls in mini skirts, a geeky-looking Spanish dancer in a bolero jumpsuit, and what looks like an African-American woman in a French maidÃÂÃÂs outfit. They all dance to a peppy jazz tune in typical floor show style, except for the Spanish guy, who bends like heÃÂÃÂs Gumby. For the most part, though, this is a pretty typical soundie.
Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ***. Weirdness: ****. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.
